Please join us as we celebrate 40 Years of Innovation!

Printing for Fabrication 2021 takes place ONLINE 11-13 October.

And while we cannot collocate the entire conference with the International Conference on Advanced Imaging (ICAI 2021) in Chiba, Japan, as originally planned due to ongoing COVID concerns and restrictions, the two conferences will share a number of sessions and collaborative opportunities, in-person and online.

Print4Fab 2021 Online

Print4Fab 2021 includes a robust Technical Papers Program; Short Courses; Exhibits; and vibrant networking opportunities.

  • All talks are presented live, with real-time text commenting and live Q&A. Recordings of the live sessions will be available to attendees for 4 months post-conference.
  • The online program allows you to participate while attending to other work and personal responsibilities.
  • Different from previous years, the Print4Fab 2021 Short Course program will run as monthly events (~June to September) leading up to the start of the conference.
  • Print4Fab is interested in providing a platform for the latest innovations in printing & imaging technology. To make it easier for you to participate in this year’s event, we have extended the Presentation-only deadline to 13 September. Submission requirement: 1-2 page extended abstract. If accepted, you will be scheduled into a time slot during the technical program, scheduled for 11-13 October.
